COVID-19

Pre-Screening:

If your child has been absent from care a week or longer due to hunker down or you are a new client we will have a pre-screening form as well as a temperature check prior to care. Please stop by the main IMS office before you enter any other parts of the facility.

 

Please adhere to the following steps to keep us all as safe as possible!

  • Parents and older siblings (even those in care here) will no longer be allowed to enter any classroom! Parents, please be patient with teachers, as they will be greeting you at the classroom door and taking your child and bringing them to you at pick up. Parents with babies, they will hand you your infant! If you need anything from their cubbies inside the classroom, just ask and the teachers will retrieve the items! Parents are encouraged to wear masks when in both facilities.
  • If you would like tour options, please call the facility. We will not be allowing full center walkthroughs at this time.



Please do not bring the following items in to the centers:

  • Car seats (if you absolutely need to leave one you must make arrangements with the office).
  • Extra toys of any kind (this includes show and share)
  • Backpacks


 

Other center precautions and policy

  • Children will not be brushing their teeth after lunch during this time! All new tooth brushes will be given when it is safe to do so!


  • We will be discontinuing family style meals at this time. Kids will not be serving themselves, food will be available for all kids to decide what they want to eat (as always), but the teachers will be serving their group the whole meal. This will cut down on 10 kids touching every utensil, bowl and pitcher!
  • We have removed all dress up, stuffed animals and are rotating toys which makes cleaning easier!


  • Nap time is still and always will be cleaning opportunities for staff to wipe down toys, shelves, doors and walls as well as the end of the day.​


  • Temporary hours of operation 6:30am-5:30pm


  • Hand sanitizer at both check in computers for parents and staff.
